Theo Padding's picture


We are using ARIS Test Designer and SAP Solution Manager. We are using BPMN for process modelling. Currently we are using pools (with assignment to BPMN process model) as a method to design 'process interfaces' to other re-usable processes. I have investigated the possibility to use a Call activity instead, but the use of a Call activity does not work in ARIS Test Designer. In BPMN 2.0 a Call activity is the replacement of a re-usable Task in BPMN 1.2.

In ARIS a Call acitivity has an assignment to a process model on the same level. In BPMN a start and end event is not mandatory, but for ARIS Test designer these events needs to be modelled in order to create test paths.

My question is: when I use ARIS Test Designer and use a Call activity in a process model, is there a reason why the re-usable process is not supported by the ARIS Test designer? I tried to use start and end events before and after, but (so far) I was not able to create test paths in the user definable option.

To my opinion we should not use pools to visualize process interfaces.
